The Zanzibar Football Association (ZFA) (Swahili: Chama cha Mpira wa Miguu Zanzibar) is the governing football association for Zanzibar, Africa.

The ZFA are an associate member of the African governing body, the Confederation of African Football. Following a rejection from FIFA in 2005[1], the ZFA were removed from CAF and after much lobbying were reinstated as an associate member. This meant that the club sides associated with the ZFA can participate in the continental club competitions organised by CAF but the Zanzibar national team could not. The ZFA are not entitled to vote in CAF affairs due to their associate member status.

As the national team can not participate in CAF international tournaments, any players eligible for Zanzibar are also eligible to play for neighbouring Tanzania.

As a nation state, it has competed in CECAFA organised competitions since 1949.

In 17 of October 2009, the team was accepted has provisional member of the IFU.
